My brother is extremely interested in 1911's mainly because his hands do not cooperate well with glocks. Anyway, what 1911 do you feel like is the best bang for your buck? I know this is a tough question to answer since there are a million different makers of this type of gun, but are there any brands he should stay away from? Any brands actually worth the extra money? His plan originally was to buy a springfield GI for around 500+ish and build it up from there. I did a search and they say its not cost effective to build it on your own but the satisfaction is worth the money. Let me know your thoughts and opinions. Thank you Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
